So I'm helping my little brother out with his physics EEI, on pendulums, and he asks my why length and angle affect period of a pendulum.
I was about to answer him, then realized I actually couldn't.
Not wanting to look dumb in front of little bro, I feigned diarrhea and made my way to the bathroom. Way i figure it, I have about 20 min max to find an answer. Nothing tells me anything more than 'because it does'.
The length would affect the GPE and thus velocity, but I have a feeling the longer amount of space it has to swing through balances this out.
I have also have a feeling the explanation for these things are linked.
Please help /sci/, babby tier shit got me stumped.
If i pretend there's a serious issue I might get an hour, but pls respond
